5:00am
>> reporter: their owner sent their measurements to doreen brown. but pony dimensions are different. >> you had to work out legs & came and then, of course, you had a wider neck compared to a human being. >> reporter: how do you get a cardigan on a poen sny? >> it was a case of putting one foot in, put the other foot in, button it up. >> reporter: most of it was done lying on the ground which is only possible because 7-year-old fivla and vitamin are so calm. no accidents, right? >> no, no, no. >> reporter: shetland ponies and shetland knitwear. in the case of these pony sweaters -- >> they looked absolutely dreadful until they went on the pony. >> reporter: that's a case with a lot of clothing, huh? we've seen critters wearing sweaters, from penguins to dogs, pigs, even turtles on the blog called animals in sweaters.
5:01am
what the [ bleep ] is that? >> that's a sweater fit for hanibal lechter. i once dressed up in plaid to match a horse. this is no match for these two dressed by scottish tourism. how much did they have to pony up for a sweater fit for a pony? little less than $200 a horse. a bargain. the sweaters are hand washable. >> i don't want to sound insulting, but the sweaters make them look a little fat, don't you think? >> they are fat. >> reporter: who are you calling fat? button your lip, lady. jeanne moos, cnn. new york. good morning, everyone. i'm randi kaye.
5:02am
>> i'm victor blackwell. it's 8:00 who are here on the e coast. thanks for starting your day with us. >> bitterly cold, possibly deadly conditions for much of the northeast, midatlantic and the midwest. tennessee valley and the carolinas also on ice and any reprieve -- well, could still be days away. frigid air also is making life even tougher for victims of superstorm sandy. many still don't even have basic utilities to heat their homes. national correspondent susan candiotti joins me now from staten island. i understand you spoke to a resident there who still can't get home. what is life like for these people right now? >> reporter: it's tough for everybody, randi. you can imagine it's about 15 degrees outside. with the windchill right now, feels about 5. all this cold is adding to the misery of people still recovering from superstorm sandy
5:03am
back on halloween. you look at staten island it's not hard at all to see houses that are still boarded up, debris everywhere, construction workers trying to get things back in shape. larry gonzalez, here's his story. his home was filled, because of the storm surge, with at least four feet of water. not only that, but a few hundred gallons of heating oil ran through his house. and you can still smell it. you can still see some of it. and he's in a dispute right now over whether his house should, in fact, be demolished or is able to be cleaned up. he just doesn't think that's possible. here is what larry told me. >> they told me it can be cleaned up. when i asked them if they would bring their kids in here, they all told me no or they don't answer me. if you're not willing to bring your children in here, don't expect me to bring mine. >> reporter: for now, larry and his wife and children are living in a fema paid for apartment. so they do have heat. they're being taken care of now.
5:04am
but the question for him and so many others is they don't know what lies ahead. that's the biggest problem right now, randi. >> what exactly is the city -- or what is fema doing to make sure these folks don't freeze? >> reporter: for one thing, i'm going to show you this tent over here. there's a woman who runs a tent over here. sheerks at least, is providing a place for people to hang out, get a hot meal and basically for people to talk and help each other through this. the city is providing -- if you call them and don't have heat in your house, your a victim of superstorm sandy, they will get y you, they say, into a hotel that very same day. it might not be around where you live, but they'll get you some place safe and warm and you can stay there for as long as it takes. >> they'll take it no matter where it is. >> reporter: they also said today -- that's right. they're also going door to door today to make sure people have the word on that, to make sure they know they can get help. >> susan candiotti for us.
5:05am
thank you. and stay warm yourself there. >> reporter: you bet. hacker group anonymous has declared war on the u.s. government after hacking the federal sentencing commissions overnight, here is what the site looks like right now. all morning it's been going from being totally shut down to showing a video and this long letter that demands many things. it's here in green on this black page. >> the video and letter addressed to the citizens of the world threatens, quote, chaos. and nick valencia has been looking into this for us this morning. how real is this threat? >> they're very real threats. in the past they've followed through on similar threats in disabling websites like the fbi and government websites like the department of justice. not the first time they've taken down the doj. they're comprised mostly of anarchist-type computer hackers. they are a leaderless
5:06am
organization. again, they've got a lot of global support. they're demanding fundamental changes to the department of justice. they believe a past high-profile hackers have been victims, they say, to draconian, overzel us charges by the government. they said this morning it was a very symbolic move to take down this website. >> what do they say in this long letter on the page about why they're doing this and why they're doing it now? >> we have an idea. a couple of weeks ago, co-founder, internet activist, aaron schwartz in new york, took his own life. members of anonymous say the u.s. government -- he was facing $1 million am fines and years in jail. they're saying that's culpability, the reason he took his life. in this statement, they mention aaron schwartz. i want to read a section of that statement. they say with aaron's death, we can no longer wait. the time has come to show the united states department of
5:07am
justice and its affiliates the true meaning of infiltration. the time has come to give this system a taste of its own medicine. the time has come for them to feel the helplessness and fear that comes with being forced into a game where the odds are stacked against them. >> certainly speaks a lot to how they felt about the case with aaron schwartz. what about these warheads? they each have the name of a supreme court justice. what are these about? >> we tried to look into that a little more. details given on this statement by anonymous are very vague. they don't go into detail about the extent of damage these virtual warheads will cause. what we do know, though, is that they're asking syndicates of anonymous to download these files and be ready when they say go. they're calling this operation last resort. it's a very ominous warning, saying it's no holds bar against the u.s. government. they're not in it to negotiate. this is an ultimatum. either change the way you come after the hackers or we're going to come after you and they
5:08am
already have. >> nick valencia, thank you. from lance armstrong, a deadline. they say he has two weeks to testify if he ever wants that lifetime ban overturned. his lawyer says that's not going to happen, citing scheduling conflicts among other reasons. they want to talk to international sports authorities instead. a week ago armstrong admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs. here is the head of the u.s. anti-doping agency with cbs' scott pelley. >> he said everyone did t he wasn't doing anything special. >> it's just simply not true. the access they had to inside information, to how the tests work, what tests went in place at what time, special access to the laboratory. he was the one in an entirely
5:09am
different playing field. >> tygart says they will go forward with their investigation whether armstrong cooperates or not. hillary clinton's time as secretary of state is almost up. no more hearings, no more trips overseas. clinton and her soon-to-be ex-boss sat down for an interview. >> why did you want to do this together, joint interview? >> main thing is i just wanted to have a chance to publicly say thank you. i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we've ever had. it has been a great collaboration over the last four years. i'm going to miss her. wish she was sticking around. but she has logged in so many miles, i can't begrudge her wanting to take it easy for a little bit. >> you may have noticed something different about hillary clinton this week, her glasses. the thick rimmed black glasses
5:10am
are not a fashion statement. an aide says she's wearing them instead of her contacts because of lingering issues stemming from her concussion. many experts say it's like ly a treatment for some double vision. we have got much more ahead this hour. here's what's coming up. this man was convicted of murder. so how did he get a gun permit? the story you haven't heard about a narrowly avoided massacre. new orleans will soon be welcoming the nfl, though maybe not its commissioner. why roger goodell might find himself locked out of some of new orleans restaurants. a horrific fire, espn anchor severely burned. she talks to sanjay gupta as she returns to the scene of the accident for the first time.

oh, cold day in washington, d.c. good morning. good morning. good morning. it's snow there at the capitol dome. we'll check in with alexander steel in a few minutes to find out exactly how long this cold snap will last and when we're going to see some warmth sbom s and some sunshine. millions are expected to be on the mall in washington. emily schmidt joins us. how big of a crowd, especially with the temperatures there, are they expecting? >> reporter: this is going to be the gathering spot they're going to be gathering in a couple of hours to do this march on washington. they call it the march on washington for gun control. organizers say, frankly, they have no idea how many people they're going to get. that's because this started as an idea on facebook.
5:15am
two people who said right after the newtown shootings, we have to do something. what can we do? they decided a march on washington was one of the best ways that they could do it. right now on facebook, there are more than 35,000 likes for this. we know there will be celebrity speakers, including kathleen turner, secretary of education arne duncan tweeted last night he is looking forward to being here today. how does that translate to people being here? in some ways organizer molly smith says it doesn't matter. it's all about taking action. take a listen. >> it's been a remarkable learning experience, the realization that we're citizens and this san active citizenship and being a citizen isn't just sitting around, gasping about it, talking about it or being an arm chair activist. it's actually moving into it, physically, with your body, embodying citizenship. >> reporter: victor, one of the
5:16am
things they're planning to do today is make their voices heard simply by their presence. they are hoping there will be thousands of people here. one indication they have is that it costs $49 thank you to put on this march in washington. they have raised almost all of that now, if not gone over a bit, just by grassroots donations. largest donation, $1,000. the smallest about $5. they've had people going through social media, saying this is important to them. what we're going to see in a couple of hours is that people will be gathering here at the reflecting pool right at the base of the capitol. then they're going to march silently, holding signs that have the names of victims of gun violence. they'll head up this direction, down constitution avenue. the whole time, they say, being silent. they will end up at the washington monument. speeches will begin there. victor? >> emily schmidt in washington for us. thank you. beyonce's performance, not live. manti te'o's girlfriend, not
5:17am
dead. in fact, she's not real. and hillary clinton's testimony, that was real. >> i take responsibility. >> i think it's inexcusable. >> dramatic new confession. >> manti te'o speaking out to nbc's katie couric. >> what i went through is real. >> did she lip sync or not? >> ongoing scandal. >> did you sing the thing live or not? >> i just don't care. >> did she fake it? did he lie about it? and what did she know when? republicans wanted an answer to that question this week when they hammered hillary clinton on the attack in benghazi. >> you let the consulate become a death trap. >> had i been president at the time, i would have relieved you of your post. >> we were misled that there were supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that. >> hammer, meet hillary. >> the fact is we had four dead americans. >> i understand. >> was it because of a protest or because of guys out for a walk one night and decided to go
5:18am
kill four americans. >> i was waiting for her to say, what? what did you say? >> it wasn't all sparks. there were some tears. >> sisters and brothers, sons and daughters. >> and some lighter moments. i bet beyonce wasn't laughing this week after that big flap over the lip flap. ♪ o say can you see >> actually, no, we can't. is this thing on? ♪ the bombs bursting in air >> was there a second singer on the grassy knowles? >> and who cares, right, anderson? >> who cares. it's not like she pulled a milli vanilli. >> prince harry was not faking it as captain wales. he is back home after a 20-week deployment in afghanistan and,
5:19am
ladies, he's looking. >> if you feel the right person and everything feels right, it takes time. especially for myself and my brother. >> reporter: speaking of love, there's a lot of it at the sundance film festival this week. maybe a little too much. >> physical contact with like other dudes? >> reporter: yeah, sex, the center of several of this year's featured films. some critics call them filthy films. >> that's ridiculous. >> no, it's not on the verge of pornography at all. it's lovemaking. these are two people that are in love. >> these two people are definitely not in love. >> eye never met manti te'o in my entire life. >> in his first interview he says, okay, sure, his online girlfriend was not real but his emotions were. >> what i went through was real. the feelings, the pain, the sorrow. that was all real. >> either you're the most naive person on the planet or this is the saddest story, i think, ever
5:20am
written. >> reporter: we couldn't agree mo more. and that's the week that was. and we've got more on manti te'o coming up. he's still a football player making to look it into the pros. with this hoax hanging around his neck, what can he expect at the next level? we'll take a look. my insurance company told me not to talk to people like you. you always do what they tell you? no... try it, and see what your good driving can save you. you don't even have to switch. unless you're scared. i'm not scared, it's... you know we can still see you. no, you can't. pretty sure we can... try snapshot today -- no pressure. ♪ let's go. ♪ ♪ ♪

5:23am
sports now. one arm half court, he hits it. and, look at this, he is tackled by lebron james. he is now $75,000 richer. that money came from the lebron james foundation. he was chosen by the foundation to try the shot. then they flew him in from illinois. it's amazing. he says he had been practicing the shot for two days but had only made it once. make that twice, clearly saved the best for last. >> oh, man. just over a week away now from the super bowl in new orleans. 49ers and ravens will get there this week. they are expected to be welcomed with open arms.
5:24am
but one man coming to the game may not get such a warm welcome. talking about nfl commissioner roger goodell. that sign is popping up in windows. >> because of the bounty gate scandal, the one where saints allegedly paid each other for hurting their opposition. good to have you. this going to follow him the whole time he's there? >> i think so. i don't think he will be running the streets of new orleans. he may be hiding out a bit. i think a lot of people blame him for taking away the coach down there and it had an impact on how their season went. i think he is in a difficult situation, trying to do the right thing, make the sport safer, making all the right decisions. it's like when you're young and your parent used to ground you and you had these rules you had to follow. you kind of resented them at the time but some day you look back and you say, you know what?
5:25am
they did have my best interest in mind. >> a lot of people say that he has done plenty of good for new orleans. he helped to keep the super bowl there after 9/11. he helped save the super dome. one quote from mayor mitch landrieu said i know everybody in the city is belly aching, but here is the deal. roger goodell has always been a friend to the city of new orleans. it's time to move on. you don't have to forgive, but you do have to forget at least a week, bury the hatchet. do you think they'll get past it? >> eventually. it hurt that city. we know the dynamic team they have been. clearly they weren't the same team without their head coach. and a lot of people think it was mr. goodell's fault. you have to respect him for what he has been able to do and help the game evolve when it comes to safety. let's talk about manti te'o.
5:26am
he explained himself to katie couric this week. i'm sure you saw that interview. he says he was a victim but admits that he lied a bit. we're talking, of course, about his fake girlfriend. but his next step is the nfl. he has to be interviewed for the draft. how much will this weigh in to what these interviews will be about? >> he is going to be put through the ringer. i remember being drafted and before the draft, at the combine you're sitting in the room with the gm, head coaches and there's a psychologist in the room, too. they're going to be throwing questions at this guy. they're going to test his character. that's been challenged through this. i feel badly for him. he's not going to hear the end of this for a long time. he has been made a fool of in front of the entire nation. i remember as a rookie, they make you stand up and sing in front of everybody. if you don't sing well, you got made fun of. i think it will definitely hurt
5:27am
his draft status. regardless of whether it was because of this situation or not, in the national championship game on a big stage against big-time players, he played really poorly. if that was because of his mental state, that shows a weakness. you don't want to invest big dollars in somebody who, under a big stagen under mental stress and strain is going to flop. that's what happened in that national championship game. >> let's talk about big dollars and endorsements. aside from maybe match.com, who is going to come along and offer this guy an endorsement with this hoax? >> you're exactly right. as a company you never want to have somebody endorsing your company who has shown weakness. i think that's what has come through all of this. and so whether it's match.com, eharmony or online identity theft, those would be good companies for him. but it's going to be a difficult situation. >> let's talk about something else, another trend that's online. we see tebow'ing. now there is --
5:28am
>> kaepernicking, this, the kiss of the biceps. he wants to trademark kissing his arm. it's unbelievable. >> i laughed about that and said come on. that's as arbitrary as giving a thumbs up. at least get some originality. that's been done before. i looked into it. it looks as if the guy has good intentions. camp taylor, the money that's going to be raised from the t-shirts, it will go to kid that is have congenital heart disease. >> at least there's some good there, not all ego. >> it's a little ego. >> can you do it? there you go. hackers of online information is declaring war on the u.s. government. what they say pushed them to attack a government website overnight.

5:35am
altitudes, above us, is above that. it's coming down as liquid and then freezing on the ground, not coming down as snow. sunday at 9:00, you can see. here is the ice around chicago. could be substantial, actually. could be a quarter inch or so. that may seem minute, but in terms of ice, it is substantial, in terms of the power lines potentially, the trees, sagging of the limbs, breaking off. the roads being icy, the bridges. certainly we could see that. on monday it all moves into the northeast as, in western new york, upstate new york, once again snow and ice. we'll deal with that on monday. in terms of temperatures, frigid air, coldest air of the season. that will moderate as well. believe it or not, we'll pick up about 20 degrees for many of us. warmer air. this ridge of high pressure, big ridge brings warm air from the south. that's all you need to know. finally, that warmer air moves into the east coast this week. so, tuesday, wednesday, that's kind of the pinnacle of the heat. we've hit the bottom. things are only warming up. chicago in the 20s today. by monday, you're at 44 degrees.

♪ welcome back, everyone, to "cnn saturday morning." 41 minutes past the hour now. to the casative minnesota man discovered by police with an arsenal of 13 firearms in his home, including handguns, ak-47 and a 50 caliber desert eagle. philip christian oberlander was
5:42am
found with a note called i am so homicide and, quote, i think about killing all the time. more disturbing is the fact that he got his hands on these firearms at all. he is a convicted felon who spent time in a state hospital for killing his mother with a firearm more than a decade ago, but since has been released. the incident exposes the dangerous loopholes in the nation's gun laws and minnesota's system of criminal background checks. paul callan joins me now. this is such a disturbing case. at the heart of the nation's gun debate is this one. on one, gun advocates say don't take away our guns. just do the background checks. and others say it's not enough. in this case, it failed. legally speaking, what is the fix? >> you're right, randi, this is a terrifying example of the utter failure of gun control regulations in place currently. the character jason from halloween movie getting out of the mental hospital and then being armed with ak-47s, this

desert eagle, semi automatic magnum and the other of the 13 weapons he had on him. it's a shocking, shocking case. it happened because of a combination of factors. number one, although minnesota has a law that requires you to go to a police station and get a permit to purchase these kinds of weapons, they don't require you to be fingerprinted or share a social security number. he went into a police station, reversed his middle name and first name and they gave him a gun permit. he goes to the gun store to buy all these weapons and he's supposed to clear a federal check, but there was nothing in the federal database to indicate that he had been -- >> because they purge those. >> exactly, because, you know, people who oppose national records of mental health treatment have created a system where his name is not even listed in the national directory. and he was confined as mentally ill and dangerous until the year 2003. >> right. >> of course, after killing his
5:44am
own mother. >> all he had to do was wait until he was 28 to get those records purged. if a disaster had been committed as a result of this flaw in the system, who would be liable, paul, other than the suspect? anyone? >> probably no one. people would be shocked to know that congress, in 2005, passed legislation that largely immunizes gun dealers and gun stores for liability and lawsuits like this. you would have to prove that the gun store actually knew they were selling the gun to somebody who was going to go out and do harm. the gun store will just say, hey, we made a phone call and there was nothing in the record database. in terms of the police and minnesota, they made a big mistake. his name should have been in their criminal record system, at least until he was 28 years of age. and they made mistakes. but there's immunity that protects them from suit. so, in the end, had he killed people, they would have no remedy, in fact, under existing law. it's a terrible situation. >> frightening. >> yeah, really horrible.
5:45am
>> the suspect now in jail for being a felon in possession of firearms. how much trouble is he really in here? >> he's facing five years under minnesota law. i think because -- you know, they found a note in his house in which he rumenates about the fact that there's a monster in him that wants to kill and the monster wants to come out again. i would have to say he is due for a civil commitment as mentally ill. i suspect even if he doesn't go to prison for a long time, he will wind up in a mental institution. who knows what will happen ten years down the line. it's a frightening situation. >> this is not an isolated example, as far as i understand it. how many more mentally ill convicted felons are there who were able to obtain permits to purchase guns? >> it's not isolated at all. ironically, groups that wanted to protect the rights of people to get mental health treatment and to put strict privacy limits
5:46am
on disclosure of that treatment have created a system where there's no national database. we're very, very protective about our medical records in the united states. so these records of mental health treatment simply are not available to law enforcement authorities. and i think you're going to see a lot of cases like this happen ing in the future unless we radically change the way we keep records, regarding the mentally ill in the united states. >> paul callan, nice to see you. thank you very much. >> always nice being with you. in wickedness and wrongdoing, stories range from gunmen to good grief. here is your week of crime in just 60 seconds. >> i heard about six shots. >> three people were injured after a shootout at lone star college in houston. none of the injuries were fatal. a 15-year-old new mexico boy admitted murdering his mother, father and three siblings sunday. >> we've never had a case like this, as far as i know. >> officials say his original plan, a walmart killing spree
5:47am
and death by cop shootout. he will now stand trial as an adult. a doctor found dead, bound and burned in a philadelphia basement. >> it's just beyond comprehension, that this could happen on our block. >> the man in custody? jason smith, an exterminator who was at the victim's apartment for a service call. police say that before the murder the two had never met. and finally -- >> uggh! >> -- peter robins, voice of charlie brown, was arrested wednesday, the charges? stalking and making repeated threats. he has plead not guilty. that's your week of crime in 60 seconds. a ball of fire from a propane grill left espn host hannah storm with first and second-degree burns on her face and her body. now she's explaining what happened on that traumatic day. at 100 calories or less, there are plenty of reasons people are saying "progress-oh!" share your progress-oh! story on facebook.

with us. we start with the secret hacking group anonymous, who hacked the federal commission's website, posting a threatening letter threatening, quote, chaos, if their demands aren't met. now they claim they've taken over the web page of the u.s. supreme court. >> nick valencia joins us now. what's the latest on the supreme court web page? >> we saw this tweet from anonymous' twitter page. they tweeted a page of code that they say they're using to attack the web page of the supreme court. we went to check out the supreme court page. everything looks normal, victor. it doesn't look like anything is abnormal there on the site. we're waiting and seeing what develops from this. as you know all morning they've been threatening to go after the u.s. government. no holds barred. we're waiting to see what happens. >> looks normal. >> exactly. what do they want? why now? is the question. >> just a couple of weeks ago
6:03am
aaron swartz, an activist, he committed suicide a few weeks before he was set to stand trial for federal computer fraud charges. they say he was facing 35 years in jail, $1 million in fines and they say these charges brought against high-profile hackers like swartz are just draconian, overzealous and they want a fundamental change to the way they're prosecuted. >> this really long letter on the uscc website mentions warheads. >> it does. >> what do we know about these warheads? >> a little alarming the in language to warheads. we don't think they have access to actual nuclear warheads. they've asked syndicates of anonymous to download when they're ready to launch these files, these warheads, which they've named after supreme court justices. we still don't know exactly why they've named them after supreme court judge justices. >> yeah. >> they have downloaded these files and asked them to be ready
6:04am
at a moment's notice. >> this isn't the first time they've hacked into a u.s. government website. >> no. they've taken down the fbi website, doj's website, gone after motion picture industry. they're a very credible organization, have a lot of clout on this internet. leaderless organization, sort of ambiguous leadership. a lot of global support. right now they're asking their global supporters to be on call for this operation last resort, they're calling it. very ominous warning for the u.s. government. >> this story has changed a lot in the last two hours and we're sure it will change eventually in the next two hours. we'll stay on top of it. >> of course. action by congress to keep guns out of the wrong hands. big march, a rally, is expected to get under way an hour from now. emily schmidt is at the national mall. she joins us now. how big a crowd are we expecting there today? >> reporter: randi, good morning to you. it's a cold morning in washington. so a lot of people would rather be inside. organizers think that thousands
6:05am
of people will say forget the cold, they believe in the cause. and they expect thousands of people to be here later today, beginning in about an hour, for this march that they call the march on washington for gun control. the interesting thing about this, this was never something that was on the books six months ago or two years ago. it's not an annual tradition. it started just after the newtown, connecticut, shootings when organizer s said we have t do something. they recognize they haven't had much time to organize but say this was the time to act. listen in. >> this has only been one month in the making and this isn't something that started with a big organization behind it. it really is completely grassroots bipartisan citizen activists but we know there are thousands. >> reporter: we have seen this movement spread on facebook, more than 5,000 likes when you go to their page. they say that's how they've raised most of the $49,000 it's
6:06am
going to take to put on this movement. one of the things they are most excited about is that of the prpts they are expecting two busloads of people to come down from newtown, connecticut, to stand and share together in this cause. >> what do they hope to accomplish? what do the protesters want? >> reporter: they think that today is the first step. they want to start to have this visual reminder that there are citizen activists out there, people who may never have talked about the issue of gun control before who feel moved to talk. you take a look at the list of the things they want, it's very similar to the proposals we hear like from senators dianne feinstein, reinstating the assault weapons ban, limiting the amount of ammunition that could be in a magazine. they're looking for what they call sensible gun control. but they also recognize that because of the gun lobbying here in washington, d.c. that it's a very tough battle that they are about to fight. >> i was going to say, they have a pretty tough battle ahead of them for sure. emily, thank you very much. appreciate it. >> reporter: yep. now the latest on lance
6:07am
armstrong. his attorney says armstrong will not testify in front of the u.s. anti-doping agency, at least not before the deadline expires. usada's chief says armstrong has until february 6th to testify about his drug use. he also had this to say to 60 minutes about armstrong's assertion that he did not really think he was cheating. >> it's amazing. you could go to almost any kindergarten in this country or frankly around the world and find kids playing tag or four square and ask them what cheating is. and every one of them will tell you it's breaking the rules of the game. no real athlete has to look up the definition of cheating and it's offensive to clean athletes who are out there, working hard to play by the rules. >> armstrong's attorney says they don't think armstrong should testify before the u.s. agency at all. they think the international anti-doping agency is the one with the real authority.
6:08am
for much of the country this morning, it is chilly out there. national weather service is warning of bitter cold, possibly deadly conditions this weekend for much of the northeast, midatlantic and the midwest. the tennessee valley and the carolinas also on ice. any reprieve still days away. victims of superstorm sandy, many of them still don't have the basic needs to heat their home. susan candiotti joins me now from staten island. i understand you spoke to a resident there who still can't go home. what is life like there for her now? >> reporter: it's tough for her and a lot of other people here. many residents that live on staten island come, from time to time, to this tent just so they can warm up, share a hot meal and also talk about their troubles and how uncertain they are about their future. but that's the big question for people like -- her name is
6:09am
nicole chatty. she told us that she is unable to go back to her house in a dispute over whether it should be torn down or can be repaired. she has a little girl she's also very worried about. this is what she told me about how hard it is, especially during this cold snap. >> it's hard. it's been emotionally hard from the beginning. you first have the shock and you don't realize what's going on. then you basically go through the motions of what you need to do and what you have to do and all the red tape. and now i'm standing here and it's a snow storm and all i could think about is my daughter and my neighbors' daughters and their kids. and they're out here. and they're cold, you know. it's just -- mentally, it's not good. >> reporter: now she is staying in an apartment, being paid for by fema for the time being anyway. she still travels from manhattan over here to staten island to look at her house and to kind of
6:10am
keep up with the neighbors and see what they are doing until they can figure out what they're eventually going to do about her house, whether it can be fixed. randi? >> you mentioned fema. what is fema doing besides that? what's the city doing to make sure that the folks there don't freeze? >> reporter: well, fema is paying for any sandy storm victims that don't have heat in their homes, they can't live in their homes. they're putting them up in hotels. they're making sure, especially on this frigid day, to go door to door, they say. we hope to be seeing them later today, to make sure that people are aware that they have this option. there's also a program under way where more than 2,300 people haven't had it yet but they're trying to get basic repairs done for them, to at least get the heat and power turned back on so they can get through the winter. randi? >> susan candiotti for us. susan, thank you very much. from the bitter cold to a bitter fight. after being banned for years, women will finally be allowed in

combat, but some critics say that puts the lives of u.s. troops in danger. we'll hear from both sides. that's not much you think. except it's 2% every year. does that make a difference? search "cost of financial advisors" ouch. over time it really adds up. then go to e-trade and find out how much our advice costs. spoiler alert: it's low. really? yes, really. e-trade offers investment advice and guidance from dedicated, professional financial consultants. it's guidance on your terms, not ours. that's how our system works. e-trade. less for us. more for you. your soups are so awesomely delicious my husband and i can't stop eating 'em! what's...that... on your head? can curlers! tomato basil, potato with bacon... we've got a lot of empty cans. [ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup. how did i know? well, i didn't really. see, i figured low testosterone would decrease my sex drive... but when i started losing energy and became moody...
6:12am
that's when i had an honest conversation with my doctor. we discussed all the symptoms... then he gave me some blood tests. showed it was low t. that's it. it was a number -- not just me. [ male announcer ] today, men with low t have androgel 1.62% (testosterone gel). the #1 prescribed topical testosterone replacement therapy, increases testosterone when used daily. women and children should avoid contact with application sites. discontinue androgel and call your doctor if you see unexpected signs of early puberty in a child, or signs in a woman, which may include changes in body hair or a large increase in acne, possibly due to accidental exposure. men with breast cancer or who have or might have prostate cancer, and women who are or may become pregnant or are breastfeeding, should not use androgel. serious side effects include worsening of an enlarged prostate, possible increased risk of prostate cancer, lower sperm count, swelling of ankles, feet, or body, enlarged or painful breasts, problems breathing during sleep, and blood clots in the legs. tell your doctor about your medical conditions and medications, especially insulin,
6:13am
corticosteroids, or medicines to decrease blood clotting. so...what do men do when a number's too low? turn it up! [ male announcer ] in a clinical study, over 80% of treated men had their t levels restored to normal. talk to your doctor about all your symptoms. get the blood tests. change your number. turn it up. androgel 1.62%. hi, i'm ensure clear... clear, huh? i'm not juice or fancy water. i've got nine grams of protein. that's three times more than me! [ female announcer ] ensure clear. nine grams protein. zero fat. in blueberry/pomegranate and peach.
6:14am
serving a growing number of critical roles on and off battlefields. the fact is that they have become an integral part of our ability to perform our mission. >> women serving in combat. it's a landmark policy change for the military, one that opens up 237,000 positions to women that had previously been closed. earlier this morning, i spoke with elaine donnelly, president of the center for military readiness. and she criticized the possibility of lowering physical standards to allow women on the front line. marine corps reserve captain zoe bidell responded to those comments. >> in the infantry, physical standards do matter, physical capabilities and 40 years of studies have backed this up. i'm a little curious.
6:15am
when the marines opened the infantry officer course, asked for volunteers, asked for 90, they only got two. one woman lasted not even a few day and the other a few more days after that. if the test didn't work out and we respect them for trying, where is the result of the rest of the test? marines have not been forthcoming on this. department of defense really doesn't allow the -- >> let me -- >> members of the joint chiefs to be fully candid about what's going on. >> let me just jump in here. we mentioned zoe and she's still with us. what is your reaction to what elaine is saying? >> there's a couple of things in there. first with regards to the marines test, two people does not represent the entire marine corps. the fact is that these women were asked to go to a grueling three-month school. when they come out of it, they still weren't infantry officers. they're taking all the risk without any reward and the downside. i don't think you can generalize about all women everywhere because of that. we absolutely are not asking for
6:16am
quotas for women or a set number of women in these roles. we don't want the standards lowered. we just want women to have a chance to compete to meet those standards, equal opportunity. some women absolutely will be able to do it, just like some men can't do it. we just want women to have a chance to try. regarding the sexual assault, pulling women out of society because there's danger to them is out moded thinking. we haven't been able to do that for years. that's the approach they've taken in iran or saudi arabia. i don't think that's where we want to go in america. >> the department of defense has called for quotas, calling them diversity metrics and promotions will be denied to male officers if they don't support diversity metrics. regardless of your intent, zoe, or what is being said today, this is how it's going to play out. to have what is called a critical mass or what general dempsey described as significant
6:17am
counter of women, large numbers. this isn't about individual rights. it's about group rights, pushing the diversity agenda and using our military to promote a social agenda and put lives at greater risk. >> let me ask you, elaine, about these comments by senator john mccain, certainly a war hero. he thinks allow iing women to partake in this way is a great idea. he says they should be recognized for their service for the military. how is it -- this is a man who speaks from a wealth of experience. so, what do you say to that? >> right. well, i agree with the last part. women are promoted at rates equal to or faster than men. it's been that way for decades. but surely he knows better. he talked about navy s.e.a.l.s. this is not a g.i. jane movie with demi moore. there is no way that you can integrate that type of community and say that it would improve that community. no. it would just complicate matters. when you complicate matters in close combat, attacking the enemy, that's when lives are put at greater risk than they need to be. it's not fair to the women.
6:18am
it's not fair to the men. this is not just a gift to women for valentine's day. >> let me give zoe the last word here. >> regarding the promotion matter, women have been treated very equally. you're not seeing quotas for women at the top certainly because they're not doing a very good job of filling them, if they are. women serving in wider roles, that promotion will still be the military ultimately is a maritocratist society. that wasn't happening under the old policy. unit cohesion, those are some of the arguments they implemented when they repealed don't ask, don't tell and when they opened other units to women, when women were suddenly allowed to fly in combat aircraft. and those arguments have always proven to be bunk with all the past situations. maybe they're not perfectly analagous. if we keep ignoring the evidence and the fact that women are already serving on the ground, we're doing an injustice to the

. good morning, washington. live look at the white house. you can see there is snow and it is cold there. you can tell the flag is whipping there. a bit of a breeze, too. alexandra steele has been telling us all morning there will be a warm-up soon. hold on, washington. hold on. you have to admit it seemed like an odd pairing at the beginning. obama and clinton. early on, experts wondered whether their partnership would implode in a very public way. but now, as clinton winds down her time at the administration, she's leaving next week. so we take a closer look at how the parpshtnership started and grew. here is kate bolduan. >> reporter: facing questions together before here in a 2008 presidential debate with cnn's wolf blitzer. >> i don't want to just end the war but end the mind-set that
6:23am
got us into war in the first place. that's the kind of leadership i can provide. >> and, of course -- >> senator clinton, that's a clear swipe at you. >> really? >> back then, it was a very different relationship. in the midst of an already bitter rivalry. >> i was working on those streets, you were a corporate lawyer, sitting on the board of walmart. >> you were practicing law and representing your contributor, resco, in his slum landlord business in inner city chicago. >> reporter: but that relationship quickly changed. i endorse him and throw my full support behind him. >> reporter: just as hillary clinton showed her support for president obama, obama showed his faith in clinton. >> i have no doubt that hillary clinton is the right person to lead our state department and to work with me in tackling this ambitious foreign policy agenda.
6:24am
>> reporter: what was hillary clinton's initial reaction when you told her, look, they're actually considering you as a possibility for secretary of state? >> she didn't believe it. >> reporter: philippe reines is her deputy assistant. >> i think she said not for a million reasons. >> reporter: if she was hesitant, why not just say no? >> i think she did, or came awfully close. i think the president was very persuasive. >> we're delighted to welcome senator clinton, secretary of state designate. >> reporter: she was quickly confirmed. how would she get along with the man who defeated her campaign? could she work for him? >> everyone expected, including myself, that there would be a lot of division, a lot of secretary clinton going behind the president's back. >> reporter: was there any
6:25am
